The Flipside by Shawn Johnson - ESSENTIAL

Johnson, Shawn  The Flipside, 309 pgs.  Simon and Schuster, 2016.  $17.99  Content: Language: PG (3 OMG); Mature Content: PG (2 kisses); Violence: G.   

Charlie has done gymnastics since she was a little girl.  She wanted to have a normal experience outside of gymnastics by going to a public school.  Charlie tries to keep her secret of being a Olympic-hopeful gymnast but leading a double life is not easy.  

I really liked how the main character was strong and worked hard to juggle everything that she wanted.  I thought the book was well written and I looked forward to reading it.  I didn’t like that she was lying to her friends to keep her secret.   

MS – ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, Isabelle, age 12.
